If you updated your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to iOS 4.2.1 this week, you may have noticed the new AirPrint feature. You may also have wondered which printers you can actually print to using this feature. HP says that:

HP’s existing and upcoming ePrint enabled printers are the only printers to support direct printing from Apple iOS devices – no other printer company offers this capability.
